20th September – 21st October 2017
Beetles+Huxley are delighted to be hosting the first exhibition in London to focus on Alec Soth’s critically acclaimed photographic series Sleeping by the Mississippi. One of the defining publications in the photo-book era, Sleeping by the Mississippi (2004) is a seminal body of work from the recent history of photography. This latest exhibition will include over twenty-five colour prints, and will include one never-before-exhibited photograph.
Evolving from a series of road trips along the Mississippi River between 1999 and 2002, Sleeping by the Mississippi captures America’s iconic yet often neglected “third coast”. Soth’s richly descriptive, large-format colour photographs present an eclectic mix of individuals, landscapes, and interiors.
